The Barcelona Expert Center in
Remote Sensing (BEC) – ICM-CSIC (https://ift.tt/2ejfpMJ)
in Barcelona, Spain, invites applications for a Post Doc
position on sea ice remote sensing.
This position is funded by the Spanish Research Council. The
fellow will join BEC’s Cryosphere group, and will work on
developing tools and algorithms to retrieve sea ice parameters
from L-band passive remote sensing measurements , and applying
synergistic approaches between different radiometer data and/or
The European Space Agency (ESA) Soil Moisture and Ocean
Salinity (SMOS) mission carries an L-band interferometric
radiometer which has the capability to measure thin ice
thickness (thanks to the L-band signal penetration), as well as
ice concentration, among other parameters.
Candidates for this position must have a PhD
or at the level thereof and background on Physics,
Mathematics or Engineering. Experience/knowledge on remote
sensing and Cryospheric science is also desirable. The candidate
should be self-motivated, with good writing and communication
skills. Additional required skills include:
* Data processing and analysis
* Programming/computational skills, such as in
Matlab, Python, C++ and linux minimum.
* Good interpersonal and team
